The Collaborative Center for Health Equity (CCHE) is part of the NIH-funded UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, and also holds its own P60 center grant from the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities. CCHE works to promote underserved, minority, and immigrant health; to increase health equity and improve health outcomes; and to assist in the development of health-care providers’ and researchers’ skills in intercultural communication.
The Center has relationships with tribal, urban, and rural partners throughout the state of Wisconsin, in addition to state and local government collaborations. Our staged partnership approach allows us to create and nourish long-term, mutually respectful, and trusting partnerships with members of underserved communities.
The Collaborative Center for Health Equity (CCHE) builds lasting partnerships and engages university and community partners in collaborative teaching, research, and service initiatives to improve health equity in underserved communities of Wisconsin.
The Center will be a known, respected and trusted entity where partners from rural, urban, tribal and other communities within Wisconsin can engage with academic partners (faculty, research staff, and students) to advance ideas in education, training, and research to improve the health and wellness of diverse Wisconsin communities.
